Grade 1 Class Teacher | German
My journey started in Balingen, a small town in the south of Germany. Throughout Highschool, I gained extensive experiences working with children, which ultimately led to my studies as a preschool teacher at university of education in Schwäbisch Gmünd. Pursuing a teaching opportunity in Kenia as well as gaining educational practice abroad in Braga, Portugal consolidated my decision to work in the educational field for young kids.
Eventually I finished my 1st state exam in German, Maths, Sports Music and Arts in 2017 and thereafter taught for two executive years at a primary school in Stuttgart, where I also received my 2nd state exam, which is equal to the master degrees. I acquired profound experiences dealing with diverse groups of students in diverse settings – one aspect of my work in Germany was including foreign students into my classroom, getting them comfortable with the German language. An essential component for my big next step: Working at the German School in Brooklyn, supporting the students to develop a passion for learning and preparing them for everyday life to become independent. Having found such an incredible community far away from home in an amazing city is worth gold. I can not wait to grow in this amazing school with its inspiring atmosphere surrounded by incredible people.
